Cameroon to make adultery illegal for Men

Cameroon is debating on making adultery illegal for men.  Men who commit adultery could be sent to jail under a new law being debated by parliament in the country.

Currently, women can be jailed for between two to six months for having sexual relations outside marriage.

The bill, which has the backing of President's Paul Biya's party, is expected to be approved.

Bar Association head Ngnie Kamga has said that the law would "take Cameroon backwards and would send more people to prisons".
